I ended up getting to it a bit late and it was published even later in the end so a lot of it was no longer relevant and got cut but if anyone has any comments or suggestions they would be gratefully received.
Futtocks same thing with England, Irish potato famine or coughing on blankets with influenza and giving them to Maori... are some of the worst examples!
Back on topic it would be good to see a map of the 96 departments of mainland France in relation to rugby league, what and how many departments of France would the game have a strong presence in Tarn, Aude... how many departments would game have any presence in even if only one community amateur club? and how many departments would game have no presence in at all?
I agree that they are doing more to promote the sport but all official statements seem to suggest they would be doing this under the FIR, a union body. In any case, I don't think having a single governing body for two different sports is at all a good idea. This is where the RLIF need to be fighting to get recognition.
